NATURAL FIBERS

Work increasingly with innovative natural fibers like plastic from natural resources, vegetable oil and viscose. They are committed to become a zero deforestation company.

WATER TREATMENT

Use waterborne (solvent-free) PU – less consumption of water and energy, safer to work with.

INNOVATION

Brand works with Circular Solutions as an effort to move towards circular design. They have launched their Loop Sneaker that uses a method of attaching the upper to the sole without any glue. This means that each of its parts can be recycled seperately.

VEGAN

Vegetarian leather increasingly from recycled polyester and nylon, vegetarian glue.

ORGANIC

They use organic cotton whenever possible.

DYES

Microfibers dyed using non-toxic dyes in Japan and no solvents are used in the processing, instead it is produced using a water-based system.
